Heat transfer in rarefied binary gas-mixtures confined in a bottom-heated squared cavity is investigated through the Grad’s moment equations for gaseous mixtures composed of Maxwell molecules. The numerical method based on finite differences is presented and the convergence of the numerical method is studied. Some preliminary results on heat transfer are presented.
